I tried calling Pez again today at 1 888 777 2205 as I am still trying to find out if these are safe. I was told that this number is just a call centre for placing orders and the rep could therefore not provide me with any info. I asked her for a corporate phone number and she didn't have any on file. I did a search of the posts and found another number 1-800-430-0475 but this is out of service. Does anyone have another number for them?

I finally found a number for Pez 203-795-0531 and called them today. The rep said that their facility is peanut/nut free but they have a number of suppliers and cannot guarantee that the ingredients are safe and therefore do not recommend that allergic individuals consume their products. Now this is very different from what I've read in various posts about Pez candy. Now I really am confused and don't know if I can purchase Pez based on what the rep told me.

I plan on contacting PEZ again to confirm status on peanuts and tree nuts. MY PA son has had PEZ numerous times without incident and I would like to continue to keep this on my safe list for Halloween.
I noticed on [url="http://www.pez.com"]www.pez.com[/url] that they have some new dispensers (Bob The Builder, Animals, Sports, and Halloween etc) and the kids would love them. I also saw they have a new PEZ Lip Balm....I will also check on this item when I call.
Anyone contact them lately?
What are your comfort levels with PEZ candy?

I allow my dd to have Pez. I contacted them and was told it was a PN/TN free facility and that was good enough for me.
I think alot of companies cover themselves and say they cannot guarantee the raw ingredients they use, simply because they cannot vouch for something they do not make. But I figure vast quantities of sugar are likely to come from a pretty specific manufacutrer of sugar. I could be wrong, but I do not know any of that info on any products sources, even if I call. Most companies just do not bring it up. When they, do, it makes you wonder, but it seems it is really the fact of many basic ingredients in the foods we do use.

Hope this helps.

Bought some new glow in the dark Halloween PEZ dispensers (pumpkins, ghots, mummies) at Target today, saving them for a safe Halloween surprise! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
